Yes, we've been blessed with a slew of new Filipino movies being made available on Netflix this month. What's even better is that most Pinoys have been giving love to these local films, making them part of the Top 10 Most-Watched movie titles on the platform! All in the romance genre (a clear fave of us hugot-loving Pinoys), the three films that made it to the list are: How She Left Me (3), Finding You (4), and Hindi Tayo Pwede (5). Curious to know more about these movies? Read on below!
How She Left Me (2018)
Originally titled Kung Paano Siya Nawala, the film follows Lio (JM De Guzman), a man who literally cannot remember peoples' faces. He has face blindness which makes him a recluse and withdrawn from the world—that is until he meets the free-spirited Shana (Rhian Ramos). She helps him try to remember people, her most especially, and the love that grows between them.
Finding You (2019)
Nel (Jerome Ponce) has this lifelong mission to find The One. He also has this rare condition called hyperthymesia which makes him remember every single thing about his life. But one day, an old post he wrote years back pops up on his feed, but, surprisingly, he can't seem to remember who it was about. He then goes on this search to find ~the girl~ and makes his best friend Kit (Jane Oineza) tag along with him.
Hindi Tayo Pwede (2020)
Lovi Poe plays Gabby, a woman who loses her fiancé Gabriel (Tony Labrusca) in a car accident. Gabby's close friend Dennis (Marco Gumabao) has always had feelings for her, and the two end up in a ~situationship~ after Gabriel's death. But in a twist of fate, Gabby suddenly sees the ghost of her former fiancé. FYI: Alternatively titled Once Before, Hindi Tayo Pwede was actually the most-watched movie title on Netflix Philippines two weeks ago!
